Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and is required by every muscle in the body to help maintain cellular health and tissue repair. OPTI-GLUTAMINE is 100% Pure Unflavoured Glutamine Powder that helps reduce muscle soreness & rebuild muscle.
Enhanced Endurance, Increased Power & Faster Muscle Recovery with Opti-GlutamineTM Powder
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, comprising more than 60% of the free amino acid pool in skeletal muscle. Glutamine is required by every muscle in the body, and is one of the most important building blocks in forming the proteins that maintain cellular health and tissue repair. Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid which means that for more active people, the daily glutamine requirement exceeds the small amount that the body can produce. The majority of it must come from the dietary sources. It is present only in small amounts in vegetables and pulses and therefore makes Opti-Glutamine an essential nutritional supplement.
- Opti-GlutamineTM provides a pure, highly bioavailable, instantised powder that mixes easily to provide a premium supplement which may help reduce muscle soreness & rebuild muscle tissue
- Glutamine supplementation has gained huge importance through studies that have revealed the role it plays in stimulating muscle growth & its anti-catabolic effects (prevents muscle breakdown)
- Prevents the occurrence of a glutamine deficit that can occur after high intensity exercise which can impede muscle recovery time
- Stimulates release of HGH (Human Growth Hormone) to increase the circulating levels in the blood which promotes protein synthesis & muscle growth
- Scientifically proven to cause a shift from glucose metabolism to fatty acid oxidation to increase the rate of lipolysis
- An essential supplement for high intensity, endurance sports such as running and cycling as it promotes muscle hypertrophy & replenishes muscle glycogen stores
- Additionally supports a strong immune system preventing infection and disease & acts as a neurostimulant to improve cognitive function and elevate mood
The Opti-GlutamineTM Guarantee – What Makes Opti-GlutamineTMBetter Than Other Supplements?
Opti-Glutamine™ prides itself on three key qualities that we believe set Opti-GlutamineTM above its competitors:
- Purity – Opti-Glutamine™ presents this supplement in its purest, unprocessed form to ensure the active components have the highest possible efficacy.
- Bioavailability – Opti-Glutamine™ provides a highly absorbable source of glutamine which can rapidly be transported to muscle to be assimilated into proteins.
- Quality – Opti-Glutamine™ guarantees that only the highest quality sources are used to formulate this supplement to ensure maximum efficacy of this premium quality product.
Opti-Glutamine™ maintains and promotes an increase in muscle mass which raises the basal metabolic rate. Additionally, supplemented glutamine fuels the white blood cells of the immune system, aids digestive health and promotes synthesis of antioxidants.
Opti-Glutamine™ is particularly effective for those undergoing training for endurance sports such as long distance running or cycling and can help to reduce the incidence of cramps caused through repetitive strain. It is also recommended for elderly people who suffer from cramps and regular muscle pain as a natural alternative to chemical pain killers.
The Science Behind Opti-GlutamineTM
Glutamine has been the subject of extensive scientific research and has been proved to facilitate growth and recovery of muscle making it an essential supplement to prevent catabolism of muscle tissue after work-outs. Glutamine is known as the healing supplement and many clinical studies have shown that glutamine supplementation increases the recovery time after high intensity exercise.
Glutamine has been shown to increases muscle mass, and enable improved performance. In a study, high intensity exercise was used to measure time to exhaustion as a measure of power and endurance. The graph below shows that the time to exhaustion is higher in the group taking glutamine supplements compared to those that are not taking a supplement.
Furthermore, after a second test to exhaustion was conducted 24 hours following the first. The results show that not only did the glutamine supplemented group have a consistently higher time to exhaustion than the placebo group, but the real time to failure increased. This evidence proves that glutamine supplements increase power and endurance.
The results of another study confirmed that the mechanism by which glutamine stimulates rapid muscle recovery and growth is through stimulating the release of HGH (Human Growth Hormone). The concentration of growth hormone in the blood over a period of 90 minutes after glutamine supplementation was monitored. Compared to the control group who did not take any supplements and did not see a significant change in blood growth hormone levels, glutamine caused an almost three-fold increase in plasma level of growth hormone.
The same study showed that glutamine supplementation causes a shift in glucose metabolism to oxidation of free fatty acid which is represented as a reduction in the blood plasma levels of free fatty acids.
Strong scientific evidence has proved glutamine supplements to effectively increase muscle recovery and growth by increasing the release of growth hormone and accelerate the rate of lipolysis.
When to take Opti-GlutamineTM
Opti-GlutamineTM Power allows you the flexibility to alter you daily intake depending on workout intensity. The best time to take Opti-Glutamine™ is after a workout, when the body's glutamine stores are lowest. It should be taken soon after intense physical activity to prevent a glutamine deficit which can lead to muscle catabolism.
The effects of Opti-Glutamine™ can be maximised by combining it with WheyMax™. Opti-Glutamine™ stimulates muscle anabolism which enables full, effective use of WheyMax™ which provides a complete, highly bioavailable source of protein. Together they work synergistically work to increase muscle tissue recovery & growth.
Designed specifically by our in-house nutritionists, this product has been carefully formulated using the highest quality sources to ensure that Opti-GlutamineTM delivers results. Highly acclaimed and recommended by leading sport science experts for the superior quality and efficacy of Opti-GlutamineTM, this supplement boosts gains like no other.
